this is the last profile update of 2017 [12/31]

this is the first profile update of 2018 [3/5]

happy belated second anniversary to my account [5/23]


Pleased to meet you. I am The-Dedicated-Girls, abbreviated as "TDG". You may feel free to call me any of the names of the protagonists in my stories.

I am an aspiring writer on this website who hopes to write more.

My short story collections (and almost everything I'll publish from today on) are normally grouped into stories of ten, each of them broadly covering one topic. One example of this (it's not obvious) is Parts and Pieces of My Life, which is a safe for parts of my life which I wrote about around that time. If I did not, then the writing seems different, because I am reflecting on it.

If you have anything to say, feel free to PM me. However, please stick to one thread.

Some of what should have been on my profile is in FreethinkingLife (shared account), which you can find below under "Favorite Authors".

My Stories:

Parts and Pieces of My Life: I'd count the first few chapters as "writing from back then", but honestly, it was the bridge between now and then. In there is writing from 2016 and 2017, there being a big gap in between (Winter Break). I began writing again after Marina x Machina's eagerness to review every single chapter.

Dark Soul: A Gathering of the Past: This is a gathering of stories that I cherished in the past (and wrote a long time ago). I added updates to this without edits. It is your job to catch them and point out what is the grammatical errors and to decipher what is going on. Some things are left hanging and that is the way they'll be.

We Are Not Alive: This one is a loose collection of queendom stories I've written on here, all of them drafted on FictionPress (one is not, but it is very precious). It also showcases a few of my personal "favorites" that I've written in 2017. It took forever to write.

Farming Greenberries: Right now, it's a piece that stands alone, waiting to be accompanied by two other pieces. This will be republished.

In the Woods: An Illusion of the Future: A loose collection of cabin stories! Some chapters are collected, others are rewritten, and there are some that are just simply ideas that randomly came in. If WANA took forever to write, ITW is still in progress (not really. I finally finished it). Like Dark Soul's older twin, I suppose.

Once a Bird Sang: The first half is older content, and the second half is from the 2017-2018 school year.

Stories to Come in the Future:

Etja's Storybook: A few of my favorite fairy tales, I suppose, and more from Ettie and the crew. [7/10]

We: I'm going to release it as a mini-play sometime later, maybe in 2018 or 2019. I'm not done with A1S1 yet, but it'll be rewriting some of my old drafts for "We" into play format. [1/10]

The rating indicates the probability of these ever being released.

Stories Resting in Peace:

Prequel to We: I don't even want to talk about it

Stay Strong and Remember Me: Written when I was still a bit confused but relieved about two of my best childhood friends, #NoRegrets


Announcements and A Farewell (from July 2017)

I've wanted to say a thank you to everybody, but this mental pressure is really weighing down on me. I have writing here to complete and that has to be completed within a deadline, so I am not eager to leave the website.

After I finish two series and (maybe) write the third one, I'll most likely be leaving from big stories or collections for the main part. And just in case if you're wondering what I'm doing, it's a combination between school, extracurricular classes, and responsibilities I haven't payed much attention to. Thank you all!

[to clarify things i'll just go offline from writing stories until i find a good prompt or somethin', after finishing my collections of ten]

Afterthoughts on Finishing ITW:AGOTP (from May 2018)

Surprise, I'm not leaving! (As if it wasn't obvious enough). I've got things to publish and a journey to take. I may not be as active as I used to be, and publications may be slow, but in the end, this will always be my FictionPress account. And that's probably never going to change.

As I mentioned before, I did find a good prompt, so expect to see some content from me sooner or later. Thank you for your time!

Are you wondering where else you can find me? DM me for my other accounts.

There's extra content at DeviantArt that isn't here or on FFN and will probably never end up here.

Thanks for visiting.

Essays and pieces ranging from topics like "Why Feminist and not Egalitarian?" to scraps that my writing is not complete without. Also stories that sound great but I don't have the energy to finish right now.

Silver Spoon by Chimpukampu reviews
"He was sitting in the dark, and the moonlight that shone from the windows was enough to illuminate his solemn figure. With his fragile hands on his face, he shuddered and wept for his wife. Such display of weakness was the reason why he withdraws himself from everyone, but for a six-year-old me, I saw an image of bravery. "

Sins of the Author by Marina x Machina reviews
Some people say that the things you dislike most about other people are what you see in yourself. Aaaanyways, with no relation to that first preamble whatsoever, here are some of my pet peeves regarding fellow FictionPress writers. I understand if you get mad at me. This doesn't really have any business here. As they say, the sins of the author are not those of
